The Ecology Book multi age -science #HSReviews

About the Book

"Study the relationship between living organisms and our place in God's wondrous creation!
  • Learn important words and concepts from different habitats around the world to mutual symbiosis as a product of the relational character of God.
  • Designed with a multi-age level format especially for homeschool educational programs.
  • Examine influential Scientists and their work, more fully understand practical aspects of stewardship, and investigate ecological connections in creation!
The best-selling Wonders of Creation series adds a new biology-focused title that unveils the intricate nature of God's world and the harmony that was broken by sin. This educational resource is color-coded with three educational levels in mind: 5th to 6th grades, 7th to 8th grades, and 9th through 11th grades, which can be utilized for the classroom, independent study, or homeschool setting.
Whether used as part of our newly developed science curriculum or simply as a unique unit study, the book includes full-color photos, informative illustrations, and meaningful descriptions. The text encourages an understanding of a world designed, not as a series of random evolutionary accidents, but instead as a wondrous, well-designed system of life around the globe created to enrich and support one another."

My Thoughts:
Fantastic homeschooling multiples concept! We often enjoy utilizing unit studies and programs where we can work with several of the children in one area. It sure helps the teacher (mom) to not be spread so thin when several ages can be studying the same thing. Often though I have to come up with additional work for the older students. I love how in this curriculum it has already been done for me. We tend to work on science more in the summer, when we aren't trying to master english and math as much. We started this series and the children really are enjoying it!
The book is divided into three levels, color coded so each student can find their section on the page. Now of course my younger ones still hung around to hear what the older ones were learning and vice versa. Science is something all of my children seem to gravitate to, I guess because we live in the country and really science is everywhere for us.
But not just science, science centered on God! This is primarily a text, reading book. There aren't any assignments mentioned in the book, nor quizzes or tests. It is from the Wonders of Creation series. The other books in the series sell separate study guides, where you can utilize written work to go along with the text. I am hoping this will have one in the future as well.

Check out for these great book, due to be released April 1!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
